Our in-class discussion topic for the month of December will be Achievement. During this week, we will talk together about how Achievement means focusing our efforts on accomplishing a goal. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“Don’t mistake activity with achievement.” — John Wooden (Basketball coach and author)
Our new discussion topic this week will be achievement. Achievements and accomplishments are attaining important goals we have set for ourselves. Some of our most satisfying achievements come when we finally complete or perfect something we’ve been working on for a long time — like earning your Black Belt. Those types of achievement take hard work. We can come to class two or three days a week, but if we are not spending class time paying close attention, working our hardest, and doing our best, then we are not achieving much. Through focus, patience, and dedication, we can work toward our goal of being the best we can be. This is what achievement is all about.
1) What does achievement mean to you?
2) What is something you have achieved recently?
3) How do you feel when you achieve something?
